The Tote

Photography by The Daily Prep
Thanks to Sarah for the L.L. Bean tote bag sale tip. I went with a large bag, open-top, regular handles, in dark green with monogramming. It took me a few minutes to figure out my initials because I have a hyphenated last name. In the end, I went with something that isn't entirely accurate but is more aesthetically correct. I'm sad that they no longer offer the traditional diamond monogram. I had to settle for the "classic" style. For some reason I've been obsessed with monograms lately.

Awesome! I promise you won't regret it.

I am all about the diamond monogram with the last name in the middle... otherwise my stuff would proclaim "SAG." Ugh.

The last name in the center wasn't working for me, so I fudged my middle initial. Hah, I've been over thinking things!

I love these: we use them for toy storage and no more living room eye sore. And of course to carry stuff to school and back! Made in Maine rocks.

I also purchased one for the first time. Simple navy in the zip top, extra large! I am hoping it will help us during our travels. I'm beginning to regret not adding a monogram...

Mona, that's a great idea to store toys in the living room!

Anna, monagrams are definitely the way to go. I'm going to get a zip top at some point for travel.
